How to make a 'ratchet' : One !Gate creates n copies in a short burst.

I am synthesising some percussion sounds, I would like to be able to generate a number of copies of a trigger / gate and control the delay between each one. I can think of two starting points, one using a small sequencer, and another with a STGC and a replicator? I wonder if there is a more concise way of achiving this.

Thanks

Charlie

Have you ever tried the SlipStick prototype?
The output of SlipStick can also be used to generate many trigger events that occur shortly after each other. However, it is difficult to gain absolute control over the delay times of the SlipStick events. But it sounds natural.

Oooh with the power of CapytalkReference I came across:

!Gate brownianTrigger: !FirstDuration s

This gets me very close, I need to stalk a regular timing version.

I think I might have cracked it with:

!Gate normalTrigger: !CenterDuration s
